Hello , traveling to Tokyo and then to Kyoto
I want to travel by bullet train on March 31st 2018
and return to Tokyo April 4th 2018

Is it cheaper to buy a round trip for 2 people , or buy a rail pass ?
We don't plan to travel any further than that just in city sight seeing

If its cheaper with just standard class round trips , for 2 people , where do I purchase these online ?

Hi there,

The cost of a 7 day JR Pass is roughly the same as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen. Even if you don't go much further afield, it can be worth considering one.

With the JR Pass you get 7 days of unlimited travel and even if you just use it for local travel around Kyoto, Tokyo and to the airport, it would still help you make savings.

Hope this helps,
